Thelma and Louise created and performed by Nan Fewchuk
While waiting in Cancer Care, Maggie reflects back on her life, her resentment towards her large breasts, and how the thought of losing one of them changes her perspective.

Geraldine Sloan Truhill: Mommy’s Going to the Moon, Kids! by Natalie Frijia

Talking about ED is a short puppet piece exploring the “elephant in the room”: how disability and the secrecy surrounding it affects lives.

Who’s Driving? by Makrenna Sterdan
Janet is a fast-talking car saleswoman looking to get you into your next vehicle, all based off current global issues. The biggest problem with these cars isn’t the millennials, or the toxic chemicals, or the Nazis… it’s the auto-pilot feature.
